My prediction for 2009 is that we'll end up on the outside looking in again this season. Alex Smith will be handed the starting job for doing everything right in practice and have an edge in the playbook memorization dept. The St. Loius Rams will end up with the NFC West title(Assuming Kurt Warner retires, if not Cardinals will win the division for the second straight year). New England Patriots vs. Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl, Patriot's win 38-21...
Singletary will blow around 2 games himself with spotty clock management
Frank Gore rush for 1,500+ yards
Alex Smith 1,000+ yards 3 TD 5 INT(PUP List), Shaun Hill 2,500+ yards 16 TD 9 INT
Defense gets around 35 sacks, pass rush makes significant strides
Secondary (Goldson Era) Begins to make a name for themselves with Physical play, coverage still an issue but shows little improvement from 2008
Offensive Line progresses
Now here comes the 2010 offseason, here are the Notables
QB Jake Delhomme, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Philup Rivers
RB Willie Parker, Pierre Thomas, LenDale White, Chester Taylor
WR Brandon Marshall, Lee Evans, Greg Jennings, Tory Holt
TE Dallas Clark, Heath Miller, Tony Scheffler, Alge Crumpler
OL Willie Roaf, Winston Justice, Chad Clifton, Nick Kaczur
DL Casey Hampton, Luis Castillo, Vince Wilfork, Derrick Burgess
LB James Harrison, Shawn Merriman, Keith Bulluck, Kirk Morrison
DB Terrence Newman, Nick Collins, Nick Harper, Adrian Wilson
According to http://www.kffl.com/static/nfl/features/freeagents/fa.php?option=QB&y=2010 (A bit iffy when I saw Larry Fitz as a FA for 2010, when he signed a 4 year deal this year)
Next year Isaac Bruce(if not retired from this year) and Arnaz Battle will probably be gone, which sort of ruins the depth we had at WR. With no glaring holes in our offense or defense we decide to select the best player on the board with our 15th overall pick.
2010 Mock 1st day only
1. Dez Bryant, WR, Better then Crabtree.. Possibly the next Larry Fitzgerald in terms of going up to get the ball
2. Tim Tebow, QB/RB/TE, When Singletary meets Tebow at the combine it becomes a match made in heaven. Though Tebow in opinion will be a bust.
3. Javier Arenas, CB, Drops this far due to being 5'9 and his maturity level
